Green! Buy Some. Wear Some.

What I wore March 16, 2009. It's easy for me to dress in green.

Here's how I put modern and vintage together....60s cardigan, 70s hat, 70s slacks (boys, no less) and a modern designer.

It's a favorite color, and I have a green everything to wear if I choose. So...I wore my green and caramel striped Dries Van Noten wool sweater.......god I love this thing!!
Chartreuse, olive, caramel, chocolate......favorite colors and favorite foods!
Under that I wore a 60s vintage black cashmere cardigan and way underneath was a black tank top. I wore a pair of pale caramel boys slacks. Yes.
My boots were my trusty black and purple lace up cowgirls from the 80s.

But the best chunk is my hat .......not only is it Green. Velvet. 70s floppy hat. It's Norma Kamali! I am not a label whore tho I just dropped the names of 2 biggies. But like I always say......buy Quality. Buy what you like. I spotted the sweater and had it in my hands only because of the colors...and later I found the Van Noten label. Bonus!
The Kamali hat...I've been looking for an authentic 70s floppy for about 2 years. So again, Bonus! 2 of my favorite designers....because they have a sense of authenticity and are true artists that became fashion designers.....

The Kamali hat came from etsy seller.......JPsuniqueboutique
